Auburn gains first-place votes, still second behind Oregon in all three polls

Auburn's win against Alabama netted it some first-place votes , but it remained No. 2 behind Oregon overall in the Associated Press, USA Today coaches' and Harris Interactive polls.

The Tigers got 10 first-place votes in the coaches' poll, up from four a week ago, but they still trail the Ducks by 40 points in the poll. Last week the gap was 61. Oregon got 46 first-place votes.

In the AP poll, Auburn got 23 first-place votes, up from 13 last week. Oregon, which was in the No. 1 spot by 19 points, got 36 first-place votes.

Auburn got 42 first-place votes in the Harris poll, up from 31 last week.

All three polls have the same top five: Oregon, Auburn, TCU, Wisconsin and Stanford.

The highest-ranked SEC team behind Auburn is Arkansas, which is eighth in all three polls.

The coaches' and Harris polls makes up two-thirds of the Bowl Championship Series rankings, which will be released tonight.

Coaches' poll glance:
1. Oregon (46), 11-0, 1,459 points, LW: 1
2. Auburn (10), 12-0, 1,419 points, LW: 2
3. TCU (3), 12-0 1,343 points, LW: 4
4. Wisconsin, 11-1, 1,282 points, LW: 5
5. Stanford, 11-1, 1,233 points, LW: 8
Harris poll glance:
1. Oregon (70), 11-0, 2,804 points, LW: 1
2. Auburn (42), 12-0, 2,769 points, LW: 2
3. TCU (2), 12-0, 2,621 points, LW: 3
4. Wisconsin, 11-1, 2,441 points, LW: 5
5. Stanford, 11-1, 2,417 points, LW: 7
AP poll glance:
1. Oregon (36), 11-0, 1,475 points, LW: 1
2. Auburn (23), 12-0, 1,456 points, LW: 2
3. TCU (1), 12-0 1,383 points, LW: 4
4. Wisconsin, 11-1, 1,289 points, LW: 5
5. Stanford, 11-1, 1,283 points, LW: 7
And here's the usual breakdown of the AP ballots (although there's no much to break down at this point):
  • Too many first-place votes to list everyone. Just know this: Auburn got 23 first-place votes, 30 second-place votes and seven third-place votes.
  • Auburn's average ranking is 1.73, its highest this year.
  • On six of the seven ballots that Auburn is third, Oregon was first and TCU second. One of those voters had TCU first and Oregon second.

Andy,
Thanks for your reporting on Auburn football. I go through withdrawal if I don't have something from you on my FaceBook page.

I enjoy your posts very much!
